… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Garuda plans to develop secondary hubs, adds more routes

Novan Iman Santosa, The Jakarta Post, Singapore | Fri, 02/05/2010 11:21 AM

Indonesian flag carrier Garuda Indonesia plans to develop secondary hubs in Indonesian major cities in addition to its major hubs in Jakarta and Denpasar as part of its Quantum Leap program.

The secondary hubs would include cities such as Balikpapan in East Kalimantan, Medan in North Sumatra, Surabaya in East Java and Makassar in South Sulawesi, Garuda’s president director Emirsyah Satar said Wednesday.

Speaking at the Singapore Airshow in Changi, he said the secondary hubs were to generate local or feeder traffic as part of Garuda’s efforts to expand new routes to strengthen its domestic network.

Other efforts include feeds to and from international routes, and domestic hub by-pass routes for mature markets, such as the Medan-Surabaya route, without stopping over in Jakarta.

“We also plan to develop flights from all provincial capitals to Jakarta,” he told reporters.

Garuda is aiming to increase the frequency of flights covering existing high density networks.

Emirsyah said the Indonesian domestic market still had room to grow in the world’s largest archipelago with some 230 million people.

“The domestic market is about 40 million passengers so there is still plenty of room to grow,” he said.

“Especially now that we have regional autonomy in which each region has more freedom to handle its own affairs.”

Garuda recorded 1,333 departures per week in 2008 and aims for 2,702 departures per week by 2014.

On international routes, Garuda had 338 departures in 2008 and plans for 1,222 per week in 2014.

Emirsyah said the airline plans to expand routes to include Hong Kong, India and ASEAN countries as well as opening European and American routes.

Garuda will fly to Amsterdam as of June 1 with other cities being considered, including Frankfurt, London and Paris as well as Los Angeles.

Emirsyah said Garuda would still focus on the Asia Pacific region saying it was where the economic activities were taking place nowadays.

Emirsyah also said Garuda was pursuing full membership of global airline alliance arrangements.

“We have support from KLM and Korean Air for membership of the SkyTeam alliance,” he said.

Garuda also aims to increase its fleet of aircraft from 54 in 2008 to 116 by 2014.

The airline will use Boeing 737-800 New Generation for domestic and regional routes, Airbus 330-200/300 for medium-haul and Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft for long haul routes.
